WARSHIP 2009: AIRPOWER AT SEA
17 - 18 June 2009, London, UK
First Notice & Call for Papers
With conflicts increasingly taking place far away from land based air
support, the role of naval based air power and the need to deploy a
comprehensive range of naval based aircraft has become ever greater.
RINA’s 2009 conference in its highly successful Warships series will focus
on Airpower at Sea.
Aircraft have developed rapidly in recent years and each generation of
planes and helicopters present a new set of requirements and challenges
to be met by the vessels carrying them. This is especially true of the latest
trend towards Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs). These are now common for
reconnaissance and surveillance and are on the brink of moving into a
direct combat role. The vessels that carry these aircraft have long service
lives and must be designed to take account of future developments with
both minimal time spent out of service and cost due to updates.
RINA invites papers on all aspects of naval airpower from, designers,
builders, equipment manufacturers and operators on the following
topics:
• Design: new aircraft-ready vessels and retro-fit
• Operation: aircraft handling, deployment and retrieval
• Future aircraft requirements and their strategic context
• Integrated ISTAR from distributed assets
• Vessel and crew safety
• Lifecycle analysis: designing for change and the environment
• Seakeeping: stationary and underway
• Future-proofing
• Challenges of integrating UAV’s into current platforms
